Local news outlets and office workers inside the building tracked its progress on social media throughout the day.

A raccoon who captured the nation's attention by climbing 20 stories up the side of a skyscraper in St. Paul, Minnesota, on Tuesday reached the roof of the building overnight to the delight of the internet.

Laurie Brickley, St. Paul Department of Safety and Inspection spokesperson confirmed traps are on the roof, ready for the raccoon.

Late Tuesday night, the raccoon began to slowly descend to the seventeenth floor, according to an MPR reporter.

The raccoon was first spotted on a ledge Tuesday morning, just a few stories high.

Looking like a smaller, hairier version of Spiderman, the raccoon was able to scale nearly the entire building, finally stopping to rest outside the Paige Donnelly Law Firm on the 23rd floor.

It moved to the neighbouring UBS Tower, and started climbing up, not down. "We're hoping it gets to the top so we can set a trap for it there".

It's the whole talk of MPR today (follow the #mprraccoon hashtag on social media, and find more coverage at MPR News), but I'm nearly afraid to watch.

"Pray for #mprraccoon", one Twitter user said.

The UBS Plaza building is 25 stories tall.
